Step 1: Prep your skin
Prepping your skin is the most important part of any makeup. Cleanse your skin really well before you start your makeup. This will ensure your skin is free of any oils, dirt and grime. Follow this up with a toner and apply moisturiser to thoroughly hydrate your skin. It is crucial to use a primer that targets your skin concerns. You can choose from a wide range of primers that are pore minimising, mattifying or silicon-based primers based on your requirement.
Step 2: Eye Makeup
Once you are done with prepping your skin, you can move on to working on your eyes. Eyebrows are one of the most subtle ways to highlight your face. Fill in your eyelids with small strokes to give it a natural look. Well-defined brows can be a game changer for your look! Prime your eyelids with an eye primer or a concealer. Set it with a powder to create a clean canvas for your eye makeup. Begin by applying a brown matte eyeshadow on the crease as a transition colour. Add a slightly darker shade to your eyelids and blend blend blend! Apply a highlighting shade on your brow bone and the inner corner of your eyes and blend it slightly. Apply a gel liner on the waterline and smudge a brown matte eyeshadow to your lash line to create a soft smokey effect. Add oomph to your eyelashes with a volumising mascara.
Step 3: Foundation
When you begin with your base makeup, it’s important to understand what your skin needs. If you see discoloration and acne spots you need a corrector. To correct your dark circles apply an orange corrector. For acne marks, you can use a green corrector. Once you are done colour correcting, it’s time to use your concealer on all the desired areas. We can skip on foundation for this look as we want a more natural finish look. If you still want some additional coverage, you can opt for a sheer or low coverage foundation. Pro tip, do not use cream products over powder, it’ll give a blotchy and patchy look. Apply blush, contour powder and highlighter to complete the look.
Step 4: Lips
Finish the look with a nude lipstick. To create nude lips, it’s important to define the lips with a lip liner and fill the lips with the lip liner to hold the lipstick for a longer time. Apply a lipstick of your choice and top it up with a clear gloss and you are ready to flaunt those JLO lips!
There you have it, a simple soft glam look that you can wear from day to night!
